What about joggers? Can we kill joggers?

I remember a trip up into Amish country when I was a kid to pick up a load of lumber.  There was the normal slowing down to get around a horse and buggy from time to time.  But then we came up on a lone bycyclist.  Dad slowed down and passed.  But he passed the way most people do and just sort of got over a little and rode on by.  I, being a kid and fresh with knowledge and ideas of how things ought to be, gave him a bit of a lecture as to how the bicycle has the same right to the road as a car.  You are suppose to pass wide in the other lane just as if you are passing a car.  Yada, yada.  Whatever....

My take away from this article:  "avoid harm by assuming that every driver was “a mouth-breathing drug addict with a murderous hatred for cyclists.”"  or joggers.
